Largest Charity Golf Tournament in the Province Set to Take Off

ST. JOHN'S, NL, May 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Wishes Take Flight is the largest charity golf tournament ever assembled in Newfoundland & Labrador. In a wonderful new partnership, Provincial Airlines and Innu Mikun Airlines has paired with the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada to host the inaugural "Wishes Take Flight Charity Golf Tournament" in five locations across the province: Clovelly Golf Course (St. John's, June 6th), The Gander Golf Club (Gander, June 8th), Amaruk Golf Club (Happy Valley-Goose Bay, June 8th), Tamarack Golf Course (Wabush, June 8th), & Humber Valley Resort (Corner Brook, Aug 22nd).

"Since our involvement began with the Children's Wish Foundation's Exile Island event, our employees have been blown away by the strength and courage of the Wish Kids. Helping make their wishes come true is an awesome feeling and we are thrilled to take this support to the next level", said Stephen Dinn of Provincial Airlines. "Granting wishes to sick children is truly rewarding and seeing the effect it has on the children and their families is amazing.  We continue to be inspired by these incredibly brave kids."

"We are so excited and proud to have this partnership with Innu Mikun Airlines and Provincial Airlines (PAL)." Said Children's Wish NL Chapter Director, Edie Newton. "PAL became fast friends a few years ago becoming a valued member of our extended wish granting team. With this new partnership even the sky is limitless in terms of the dreams we can help make come true!"

The tournament kickoff is June 6th at Clovelly Golf Course and closing celebrations will be held August 9th, at Humber Valley Golf Course in Corner Brook with the help of the Western Region RCMP.

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada

Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of three and 17 are diagnosed with a life threatening illness.  Since 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to over 19,000 children and their families, over 600 of these here in Newfoundland and Labrador.

This year, the Foundation expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes and is proud to have never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day.  Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family. The Foundation is a national charity with chapters in every province and territory. Visit www.childrenswish.ca for more information.
